Beautiful and quiet

4.2 on October 24, 2014

Wolf Creek Farm is certainly off of the "beaten path". If you want fancy and all the niceties, stay in a hotel downtown, but if you want some peace, quiet, and fantastic hosts, stay at Wolf Creek Farm! It is a working farm, and this area is steeped in history and beauty. The Hobacks are great people, the conversation was a joy, and the breakfasts were great. We were there for 3 nights, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The farm is just a few minutes from some great restaurants and other attractions in Mt Airy, NC. The Olympia restaurant is for down home folks like us, the food is great and the wait staff is fantastic. Prices are great, just be sure you take cash, they don't take plastic. And if you want some fall-off-the bone fantastic ribs, try 13 Bones restaurant. We also highly recommend the regional museum at the north end of the old downtown (Mayberry). The Blue Ridge Parkway is just a few miles north of the farm, we happened to catch the fall leaves at their peak of color -just beautiful. For you history buffs, the farm is actually part of the property where J.E.B. Stuart was born, his birthplace is "just over the hill".


my stay at wolf creek

4.0 on June 29, 2014

It was really great! Loved the Farm, very friendly and helpful for the area,Quiet and peaceful. Just one thing was dissappointing as the weather was beautiful and hot could not use the pool. was not available no patio furniture to sit on around pool at this time and was not aware of this until we arrived. Had we known we may have went somewhere else to enjoy a pool. we chose this place because of the pool and we just wanted to relax and enjot ourselves. I would recomend this place as long as all things are working. Would of been nice to have had the heads up on pool before we arrive i believed we payed maybe too much for what we got.

Innkeeper Response
We appreciate all reviews from our guests so we can continue to improve our customer services. We so appreciate Bed and Breakfast.com for always sending us the BEST guests! There are times when some things happen that are beyond our control as innkeepers. When we went to open the pool recently, we found that the sand filter had a crack in it; we had to replace the entire filter system and decided to go with a new salt water system that would be more comfortable for our guests. Thus, we were in the process of completing the work and the pool was not ready for guests. We apologized to our guests about the problem. We did not have the pool furniture out yet, as we had tools and piping where we were working. Had our guests expressed to us prior to or upon arrival that the pool was an essential part of their stay, we would have done our best to accommodate their needs, helped them find another place with a pool, and refunded their money.


Mother daughter get away October 2013

Back again to Wolfe Creek Farm, this time we enjoyed the company of Gary, Cindy, Kelly (mom to be) at this time. Great Hospitality, great fun and a warm place to just relax. Met some new people there (guests) and enjoyed breakfast with them. Gary and my daughter (Cindy) chatted away about everything. We absolutely love this family and we love Wolfe Creek Farms. Gary invited us to go try out the Spaghetti Dinner at his local church and boy was it so delicious. It is such a relaxing atmosphere and "we feel like family" and will return again and again. Definitely a place to write home about. Love Love Love It/Jenny Powell and Cindy Cendana, Morgantown, WV


Mother Daughter Weekend

5 on November 26, 2012

Absolutely the best place to stay!!!! My daughter, Cindy and myself, Jenny stayed at the cottage during Mayberry Days. As usual, everything was ready for us. My daughter absolutely loved it there. Gary stopped by and we chatted for over an hour (hospitality, wow). I enjoyed being back there at Wolf Creek Farm and will be back in September and October 2013 for Mayberry Days, and Autumn Leaves Festival. Perfect cottage, neat and clean, and everything at your finger tips. Great Great Great is all we can say. Jenny Powell/Cindy Cendana - Morgantown, WV

We stayed at Wolf Creek Farm as a stopover to rest before continuing our vacation driving. It was a comfortable, clean place with very friendly owners. They accomodated our needs extremely well and made us feel so welcome. I would definitely stay here again, maybe taking more time to enjoy the farm next time since we only got to stay one night.


Excellent B&B!!

We could not have asked for more hospitable and genuinely wonderful people. We felt like we were staying with family. Wolf Creek Farm was cozy and charming. We highly recommend to anyone who is considering it.


Another stay at Wolf Creek Farm - Cottage

5 on September 29, 2011

This was my second trip back to the farm. Once again I rented the cottage along with my sisters Jean, Margie, Kathy, we had a wonderful time. We never feel rushed and we just come and go as we please. Cindy and Gary are there if you need them; gracious as they are. Gary stopped by to see if we were doing okay and Cindy is just as wonderful as they come. She took the time to chat with us; listen to our needs and immediately took care of anything we needed. I cannot stress the beauty of this place - it is like nothing one can imagine. The pets are so friendly and they dont bother you unless you want them to. The area is easy to get too, very clean and I just dont think you could find anything that is so beautiful, well kept and reasonable to rent. Of course I will be back next year for Mayberry Days and of course I will be staying there!!!!! NOTHING CAN BEAT WOLF CREEK FARMS - WITHOUT A DOUBT THE BEST PLACE I HAVE EVER STAYED. TRY IT YOU WILL ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT AND THE OWNERS ARE JUST GREAT.......Jenny Powell, Morgantown, WV........Sisters Jean Propst, Kathy Johnson, Margie Karnas.

My husband and I couldn't have enjoyed this quality country living more. A real family atmosphere with great surroundings and helpful hosts.


Wonderful hosts

The farm owners were the most wonderful hosts we've ever experienced, they went the extra mile to make you feel welcome, and provided every need and offered extra activies beyond the lodging comforts.
